Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) will place a $240 million school bond before voters this November.
Inglewood residents continue to feel the impact of COVID-19 which has a direct impact on their finances.
Residents who own multi-family units are forbidden from evicting non-paying tenants due to mandates issued by Gov. Gavin Newsom and reinforced by the Inglewood City Council.
Some residents haven’t paid rent since April of this year. As a direct result, homeowners have attempted to persuade the city council to pass local measures for homeowners, to no avail.
To add insult to injury, IUSD wants residents to tax themselves, again, to put more money into the failing school district.
IUSD passed Measure GG, a $90 million school bond, in November 2012, and didn’t bother to tell residents the school district would be going into receivership the month prior. Years prior, voters passed Measure K, a $130 million school bond, which re-built LaTijera.
Now they want $240 million after:
- Closing the original Warren Lane Elementary School;
- June 29th state administrator Erika Torres made a decision to close the “new” Warren Lane formerly known as Daniel Freeman;
- Attempt to lease land on the Woodworth/Monroe/Morningside parcel;
- Erratic and inconsistent refurbishing of Morningside High School; and
- Failure to deliver a brand new Inglewood High School
How do you feel about putting more of your money into IUSD knowing that in March 2021 the city council will put another tax before you to pay for the transit connector to the Forum/SoFi Stadium and the proposed Clippers arena?
